GGTL: "But the revamped gameplay wasn't the main focus; there was something much more pressing. The Taliban. Oh, no, wait - the 'Opposing Force', as they're known now. After public backlashes from every direction, EA decided to remove that word. Why? Was it to protect free speech? Was it to honour those who gave their lives overseas? Was it to milk every last piece of publicity and free advertising out of this 'scandal'? Who knows. The only thing you need to know is that this removal is possibly the biggest public victory in the history of gaming."
